Hot Pepper Plant Pack
Farmer Stacey is a wizard in the greenhouse and loves to get baby plants off to a healthy start. Farmer Casey's favorite crop is hot peppers, and they grow about 30 varieties every summer. This plant four-pack contains some of the most popular and versatile pepper plants, sown and grown in Vermont Compost potting soil and lovingly cared for by Farmer Stacey. With proper watering, the plants can stay in their packs for up to two weeks before planting.
- 1 Poblano (Ancho Poblano): Large, fruity, mild pepper. Great for stuffing and baking (think chile rellenos) or roasting and peeling to make rajas.
- 1 Fresno (Flaming Flare): Sweet, fruity, lightly acidic backbone and mildly hot. Excellent in stir fry, sautés, and hot sauce.
- 1 Jalapeño (Jedi): This large jalapeno variety can pack a punch. Use in a variety of salsas and as an all-purpose spicy green pepper. You’ll get continuous fruit all growing season.
- 1 Cayenne (Red Ember): Medium heat with a characteristic red hue and long, tapered shape. Great in stir fry and soup, or to dry to make a powder or pepper flakes.
Sorry, no substitutions available. Too many plants for you? Pot one up to share with a friend or neighbor.
